    Hey guys, I was wondering, how many times does AC warn you about submitting unoriginal material before they ban you/close your account? I've had completely original articles rejected before and am thinking about spinning the ones I currently have.

    It's not just the 'unorignal' content, it's the 'spun' content that can get you banned. Your articles should be RE-WRITTEN (structure of the sentences changed, not just peppered with new synonyms replacing the words from the original article). Otherwise AC may say you've just lightly modified an existing article, and treat it as substantively unoriginal. If they warn you after two different sets of submissions about this, you are in trouble, especially if it's a new AC account. Also be careful to only write about topics with little competition in AC. It's useless to write real, original content if they already have a zillion published articles on that same exact niche.

    As above, you need your articles to be almost completly original, otherwise AC may take it as plagiarized, this happened to me when i first started i got one warning and then i was banned.

    I got a few articles rejected today due to the descriptive blah blah blah. Changed it and resubmitted, see how it goes.
